Plans to demolish a pub and cafe beside the Sun in the Sands roundabout in Blackheath have been squashed after planning permission was refused, alongside a subsequent appeal. Developers are now applying to retain the building and build flats to the rear.
That was rejected and so the landowner tried again with this:
This was also rejected by Greenwich Council as well as a subsequent appeal. The developer has now accepted the pub will stay and is looking to build seven flats behind the pub.
The plan states :
“The comments of the Dismissed appeal Notice of 19th December 2018, reference: APP/E5330/W/17/3184117, were taken into consideration as well.
The new scheme maintains the main existing building and proposes a well-designed rear extension that combines elements of the conservation area with a contemporary design, in order to provide high quality habitable spaces, while it maintains the commercial use of the ground floor.”
